This is one the best lite rock CD's ever made.
Mike S
I just love how it builds up at the beginning and goes through that repetitive melodic pattern towards the ending.

I can't say this is style is something very tangible, but it does become obvious when you listen to his music.

I discovered this CD in my moms CD collection and it had the St. Elmos Fire theme. That song is so captivating even after all these years.
St. Elmos Fire has that awesome orchestra sound and a sunny roimantic pop sound. It was a well deserved hit.
I later discovered other great songs on this CD. The Best Of Me is a romantic power ballad with a brooding atmosphere and a vocal guest appearance by Olivia Newton John. Whos Gonna Love You tonight is a dramatic song with a very rockish sound. The song Elizabeth to me is like a darker more minor note version of St. Elmos Fire theme.
The song that made this album forever a treasure in my CD collection is Flight Of The Snowbirds. Snowbirds is so incredible that it makes all the other songs on this CD seem average compared to Flight Of The Snowbirds. This song is absolutely incredible, powerful and far more addictive than St. Elmos Fire. I just love how it builds up at the beginning and goes through that repetitive melodic pattern towards the ending. I was in bliss when listening to it when flying in a jetliner over the clouds. It gives that incredible feeling of flying. Flight of Snowbirds will never die.
This is one CD will become a gem. It's worth the hard search. I guarantee it.

I love talent of David Foster! While I love his instrumental music the best, I really like his vocal as well. I've heard his music for the first time in St.Elmo's Fire, and I love the album "Citron" that he did with some Japanese artist! It's shame it is not available in this country..."Flight of the snowbirds" is my all time favorite! If it's rock'n Roll or ballad, funky or mellow, he does it perfect! His multi talent really amaze me!

I love this album. Every song is moving with heavy keyboards, powerful guitar riffs thrown in by Michael Landau, and solid drum beats by Tris Imbodien of Chicago. Most of the album is instrumental but Dave sings well on 2 songs including a duet with Olivia Newton-John. This is one the best lite rock CD's ever made. Flight Of The Snowbirds and Elizabeth are soft rock masterpieces. Nobody plays the keyboards like Foster can.

Back in 1986, when I had heard that David Foster had a solo album coming out - I was very excited. I had long been familiar with David Foster's work as a producer and songwriter (i.e. producer for Chicago, songwriter for Lionel Richie, his involvement with the St. Elmo's Fire soundtrack and more). Therefore, I was thrilled to discover that David Foster had a solo album coming out. His self-titled debut album "David Foster" doesn't disappoint - in fact it is outstanding. There are 10 tracks to the collection. Eight of the ten tracks are instrumental tracks. The remaining two tracks feature vocals by Foster. In a lot of ways, Foster's music reminds you of John Tesh's early days - I like to think of it as "pop/New Age". Another way to look at things is that "David Foster" is "pop instrumentation". The "pop" isn't meant to be a negative here - in fact, this album brings a nice change of pace by bringing instumental tunes into the pop landscape.

One thing that is most noticeable about Foster's music is that it has a certain style. His keyboard arrangements have a distinct style that makes it easily recognizable to be "David Foster" music. I can't say this is style is something very tangible, but it does become obvious when you listen to his music. This is especially true when you compare this style to the work that Foster did with artists such as Chicago and Lionel Richie (Foster wrote "The Only One" from Richie's "Can't Slow Down" album). When you listen to his contributions he made to those artists, you will see this style will come to the forefront. Although Foster plays Keyboards on these tracks, you will hear a diverse array of instrumentation on many of the tracks. In addition to the vocals, there is a terrific infusion of horns and guitar.

Not many music can stand the challenge of time --This one will. Attention should not be placed just on the more popular Love Theme from St Elmo's Fire, don't over look The Best Of Me and Who's Gonna Love You Tonight. It is an item you would cherish in years to come.

There's a reason the likes of Chuck Berry and Cat Stevens chose Foster as a keyboardist in the early '70s, and he (with Jay Graydon and Bill Champlin) then formed THE songwriting A-Team for the west coast record industry.

Foster is one of those "best music you never heard" artists...but you actually may have heard much of this in visual media (movies). As a solo artist or in a band (Airplay), Foster never achieved the recognition or sales he deserved, with only a couple top 40 songs. Once you listen to this and River of Love, you will scratch your head about this fact. Perhaps it is because this album is almost impossible to categorize stylistically.

Of all Foster's CD's, this one, and "River Of Love" are THE two to own for that mid to late 1980's and early 1990's sound he created (with the new synthesized and conventional music technology) combining funk, rock, pop, classical, orchestral, and fusion. While he was doing these two CD's, he was also re-inventing the band "Chicago" and subsequently helping launch the solo career of Peter Cetera with his songwriting and production skills. I was first exposed to this album about 1990 after having heard many of the songs on popular movies, documentary, and radio. It was then and has remained one of my favorite albums of all time.

BOTTOM LINE: This guy is a genius. Buy this CD or MP3 and enjoy...it is simply timeless. If you lean towards the orchestral songs, check out 1994 "Love Lights The World" and 1991 "Rechordings". If you lean towards rock and want something with a hard edge, check out "Airplay" which was his group effort with Jay Graydon.
